The Carpetbagger’s Weekly Case Studies

Kate Moss in Stella McCartney

Damn, does Kate Moss know how to rock a LBD!  She never fails to make it her own and look like a dangerously sexy goddess.  LOVE the hourglass inspired style of this Stella dress and seriously doubt Ms. McCartney could find any better PR than this image right here.  Enough Said.

Jessie J at the Brit Awards

I’m only relatively familiar with Jessie J, but she certainly now has my attention!  Her + this dress = a knockout!  Clearly on the riskier side of fashion choices, this dress displays just the right amount of promiscuity.  With strategically placed appliques and classic drapery, it successfully steers clear of looking cheap and inappropriate.  The tailoring is superb and Jessie J knows just how oozes such sexy confidence.  Also loving the basic dark hue on her nails, heavy dark eye makeup, as well as the glamourous yet laid back hairstyle.  These wise styling choices only enhance the beauty of the bold gown.    This look is definitely going on my best dressed list!

Rihanna in Givenchy Dress and Solange Azagury-Partridge earrings

I neither love nor hate this look, though definitely think it deserves a second look.  The Givenchy dress is pretty and tasteful (though that odd ring on the left halter is bothering me), and the shoes are the obvious choice to go with the dress, it’s the gloves that steal the spotlight.  This look happens to be straight from the runway, which while Rihanna seems to know a thing 0r two about fashion and how to work it, this is not typically a smart move.  The runway is its very own world that nothing else can compare to, even the red carpet.  Not to say that one should never ever try to strut a direct runway look, but this was not it.  I get the gloves, I do, but they overwhelm the whole look and just sort of weigh her down.  I do however, think that if the gloves’ length hit at just passed her wrists, we may have something easier to work with here.  Overall, I’m not impressed.  I give her props for trying, but in the end thisjust doesn’t sit so well with me.

Amanda Seyfried in Nina Ricci

Loving the old Hollywood Glamour feel of this Nina Ricci dress.  The cream who and sheer, polka dotted fabric is quite angelic, and along with her almost blindingly shiny waves of golden hair, Amanda looks positively lovely.  The shoes are a bit too wedding attire for my taste, but they could have been a lot worse.

Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian in the their line for QVC

Oh, lord.  Just the typical sleazy attire worn by a Kardashian.  Kris isn’t absolutely awful, though there’s definitely room for improvement.  It’s Kim who never fails to present herself as cheap as possible.   Positively cringe-worthy.

Rooney Mara in J. Mendal

Beautiful!  I think it is safe to say that plum is Rooney Mara’s color.  She even pulls of the bold lipstick and does so smashingly.  I’ve never seen her look so happy and my guess is because she feels beautiful and most importantly, like herself.  The plunging neckline is just what this dress needs to steer clear of basic and keep things interesting.

Kate Bosworth in Burberry

Here’s a perfect example of why I love Kate Bosworth-she wears things her own way and (unlike so many of her peers) doesn’t take fashion too seriously.  The gorgeous actress always looks adorably chic and never fails to have a bit of quirk going on in whatever she’s sporting.  This ladylike pencil skirt gets a dose of whimsy thanks to the animated owl peeking out on her sweater, then wrapped in a big velvet bow.  Instead of going with something safe and expected to cover her feet, she sided with a more playfully rugged shoe in these chunky booties.   Yet still a perfect lady, she keeps the look grounded with a simple black clutch.  This is one fashionista who decides what kind of look she’s going for, mixes her expressive pieces and personal asseccories  pulls it off without a hitch!

Michelle Williams in LV Suit and Olympia Le-Tan Clutch

This girl just won’t quit!  Michelle Williams owns the purple carpet at the Indie Spirit Awards in this badass Louis Vuitton suit!  It fits her adorably petite frame to perfection and does a mighty fine job of hi-lighting her killer gams!  Gotta give the girl props for choosing to forego any hosiery, if you got the legs for it, why not?  The double breasted tuxedo blazer and its silky black/navy color combination alone has me desperately wishing money grew on trees so I could snatch one for myself!  It ever so chicly displays William’s quirk for slightly androgynous inspired pieces and I can’t think of any other gal to pull it off better.  Now for the Olympia Le-Tan book clutch… Are you freaking kidding me Michelle?  When does the cuteness end?  I’m seriously one step away from literally framing this look and hanging it by my bed!  The entire concept of Olympia Le-Tan’s nostalgic book-inspired clutches so damn cute they deserve their own special shout out!  The Academy Awards are tonight and I CANNOT wait to see what Michelle will stun in!

Stunner, but not for the reason you’d think


Now, if you were to ask my opinion on Miss Blake Lively’s style, I’d probably give a shrug of indifference. Now don’t get me wrong, the girl has curves to die for. Put her in a potato sack, and she’ll make it a beauty. But taste-wises Blake it seems pretty clear Blake’s being dressed under the influence, her looks seem lack consistency. With all that said, it’s nearly a true statement to say she hasn’t pulled off some stunning ensembles from time to time.

Blake Lively in a total Stunner; Burberry Trench Coat, Spring 2012

Model Edie Campbell in the Trench

This Burberry Spring Trench is sensational. It’s rough and powerful, but not without a precious beauty to it that is completely new in the world of trench coats. If I had the chance, I’d snatch one of these babies with the hopes it’d last me a lifetime. Now what Miss Lively chooses to wear next, is the true testament of her style.
